A Canada Border Wall Would Make Americans Miss These 15 Things

Plus one good reason to put up a wall.

Americans want a wall constructed at the Canadian border, just as much as they want one with Mexico.

That's according to a Bloomberg survey showing that four in 10 respondents wanted both.

We're not sure they thought this one through.

Canada and the United States have the world's longest shared border. It's 8,891 kilometres long, spanning land and water, and has 119 crossings.

Americans would be deprived of many things with a wall in the way. Canada has great food, artists and traditions that our southern neighbours would have a tough time enjoying with a barrier separating us.

Here are 15 things they'd miss:

Legal drinking at 18 years old

The legal drinking age in the United States is 21 years old. In parts of Canada, it's 18. Do the math.

Maple syrup

Because Old Tyme and Aunt Jemima just don't cut it.


It's one of the world's greatest ski resorts. It's a reasonable drive from Washington state. But with a wall in the way? Not so much.

Ruffles All-Dressed Chips

Once you've had all-dressed, you never go back.

Kinder Surprise

The chocolate eggs are illegal in the United States (though there are exceptions). If you put up a wall, you'll never find the dead minion inside!

Stanley Cups

Look at all the cup-winning players from Canada: Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty, Sidney Crosby. Without them, American teams would never win.

Top NBA draft picks

Toronto-born Andrew Wiggins can jump pretty high, but can he leap over a wall?

Bandwagon football fans

They can be annoying. But boy would you miss heckling them in person.

Cross-border shopping

You'd never find great deals up here. And you'd never see "gasoline in garbage bags" again.

Cheap filming locations

Hollywood studios take advantage of Canada's low dollar and film many major blockbusters in our cities. And then promptly destroy them, like in "The Final Destination."

Iceberg Vodka

That's right, this vodka is made using water from Newfoundland icebergs. No need for ice cubes when you drink THIS at the club!


You can probably find it in the States, but it's just not the same.

Our natural landscapes

Rolling. Rugged. Beautiful.

The best view of Niagara Falls

They're especially astonishing when they're frozen.

And finally, Drake

Need we say more?

But we can think of one good reason to put up a wall.

Yeah, you Americans can just go ahead and keep Justin Bieber.
